governor romney, that president obama's policies have not slowed iran's nuclear march. >> let me be clear: america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe this is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the security of israel and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >>shepard: the president has been under fire for not meeting with binyamin netanyahu or any world leaders. despite multiple requests from netanyahu, the president did not set a red line on iran's nuclear activities. that takes us to our chief white house corporate following the president on the campaign trail. the president says the united states will always stand up for freedom. there are limits to america's influence. >>reporter: it is rare to have the two major candidates in the same city, a mile and a half apart. the president is at the u.n. mitt romney was at the clinton global initiative. th

decide to strike. >> president obama is ready to address the united nations in new york tomorrow. he's expected to focus on the wave of anti-american violence in the middle east. in an interview last night, the president called the recent uprising a bump in the road. during a campaign stop yesterday, mitt romney criticized the president's assessment. >> i think it was absolutely the right thing for us to do to align ourselves with democracy and universal rights. but i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to be bumps in the road. >> egypt has elected a muslim brotherhood person as president. i don't consider these bumps in the road. >> the white house called romney's criticism desperate. the obama campaign also released a new ad today attacking romney for not releasing more of his tax returns. >>> some people in virginia have already made their choice for the next president. absentee voting is under way in the commonwealth. people come out today in fairfax county to cast their ballots. this is the earliest people have ever been able to vote in a pr
action until a new administration comes in, either romney or barack obama in the second term. secondly, the administration has been certainly cautious about a sort of intervention, military intervention in syria. libya and syria are apples and oranges that they are quite different. libya was isolated regionally and internationally in a way that syria is not. it has the support of her rant, support russia as well as other countries that complicate the regional level and international level. finally, there've been calls to record the safe havens. i'm not a military expert, but everyone i console say that requires a no-fly zone. syria has mr. advanced and sophisticated system provided by the russians that libya did not have. there'll be much more difficult and dangerous for an assertive u.s. coalition coalition to go when in terms of military intervention to create safe havens, establish no-fly zones. even in libya it was nec and syria again is just a much more difficult situation militarily. >> host: the title of your book, "syria: the fall of the house of assad," why that title? >> gues
